Cheering on Special Olympics

Cheering on Special Olympics

The district hosted a recognition ceremony with the Board of Trustees to congratulate students and coaches on a great Special Olympics season. Chief of Police Jeff Spivey also announced results from the police department’s Penny Drive, a fundraiser supporting Special Olympics of Texas.  Overall, Irving ISD elementary schools raised more than $38,000, and Townley Elementary took the lead in contributions for the sixth year in a row (Watch footage of the celebration in this ICTN segment).
